Join the Conservatory to start trumpet lessons in Paris any time of the year. Below is information about what we offer, how to sign up, and valuable resources if you are new to Paris.

About the Trumpet

The trumpet, a brass instrument, is known for its bright and assertive sound that can cut through musical ensembles with clarity. Its piercing tone, achieved through the buzzing of the player’s lips, lends the trumpet a distinctive and versatile quality, making it a key player in various genres, from the triumphant fanfares of classical music to the vibrant improvisations of jazz.

The trumpet is an instrument that can be started from approximately 9 years old, when a child has their adult teeth.  It is a fun choice of instrument for beginners, teenagers and adults.

Our Teachers

All of our teachers hold university degrees specifically in their instrument. We selected them for their passion for music and care for teaching. They are always encouraging and positive, catering to each student’s interests, desires, and goals. We teach with an “American Approach” to music education with your hands on the instrument from the first day (read our blogpost about the American Approach).

Free Trial Lesson

A free 45-minute trial lesson is offered to all new students. We want to ensure the teacher we chose for you is the right match!

Trumpet Lessons Options

We offer 45-minute or 1-hour weekly lessons. Paired lessons are possible with a sibling or friend at the same location and at the same time. Trumpet lessons in Paris take place at your home on the day and time you choose. If you do not wish to have lessons at home for any reason, we can organize a studio for you in Paris.

What You Will Learn

Trumpet lessons will include working on the fundamental trumpet technique (proper embouchure, breath control, skills needed to produce clear tones ), exploring a diverse repertoire, developing performance skills, and for more advanced students, improvisation techniques. if you do not have a trumpet yet, please see the useful resources below.

2 Performances / Year

Two performance opportunities are given to all students in a beautiful Parisian hall – one at the end of January and one at the beginning of June.

Practice Planner

All students are given a Practice Planner for teachers to mark weekly assignments and students to record their practice.

Introduction Call

Before you sign up, our admissions team is available to speak about your personal musical goals and desires and to answer any questions you may have.


The Conservatory prepares about 25% of our student body for optional ABRSM exams. These exams are not mandatory.

ABRSM exams are designed to motivate students of all levels and ages, giving them realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements. Since 1889, ABRSM has provided music teachers and their students with exams and assessments that nurture and evaluate an individual’s performance and progress. To learn the complete details of these exams, please visit www.abrsm.org or read our blog post.
